AsBuilt Report for VSphere

Hi Folks

Until recent years , I was struggling to build a proper AsBuilt Document for VSphere environments. As the manual process requires capturing screenshots and time consuming word document preparations.

Last week , I came across 2 blogs talking about this AsBuilt tool for VMware which turned out to be  very handy and must have tool for VMware installations .

For those who want to read more about this tool, could visit the 2 blogs that are listed at the bottom of this page.

You need Windows PowerShell. Once you are ready with the PowerShell run the below commands to build your AsBuilt document .

 

1) Install the PSCribo Module

 #Install-Module PSCribo

2)Download the AsBuilt PowerShell Scripts via https://github.com/tpcarman/As-Built-Report

2.1)Extract it to a Folder

#Import-Module C:\As-Built-Report-dev\AsBuiltReport.psd1

3)Install PowerCLI Module

#Find-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI

#Install-Module -Name VMware.PowerCLI

3.1)Run the below command to bypass SSL warning for VCenter/ESXi

#Set-PowerCLIConfiguration -InvalidCertificateAction Ignore -Confirm:$false

4) Below command will create the Report

New-AsBuiltReport -Target vcenterip -Credential (get-credential) -Type vSphere -Format HTML,Word -TimeStamp imeStamp -Healthchecks -AsBuiltConfigPath C:\As-Built-Report-dev\Src\Public\Reports\vSphere\vsphere.json
